Here are photos from a long but great day of shooting out at Wimbledon. It’s late, so I’m not going to post much, but here are my favorites. Plus, any day where I get to shoot a few games of a Roger Federer match is a treat. Here is a gallery with a few more images from that match.

 

I feel good about this take overall! Another day tomorrow.

It was a bit of a strange day here in SW19. At the moment, I can think of at least eight players from both the men’s and women’s side of the main draw retired or withdrew from the tournament due to injuries. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Maria Sharapova are among several out by the second round. It’s certainly something I’ve never seen before.

But despite all the weirdness on court, the tournament goes on and there’s still plenty to shoot off court. Since there was some downtime during matches today, I tried to document the moments happening outside of tennis.

Thanks for looking, and goodbye until tomorrow!
